I spy with my little eye a BAPenguin avatar! Can you see it? The Good Major has brought word that Xbox 360 owners can download a neat and free app called the SnowGlobe which puts your friends list inside a..uh...snow globe. Watch as the helplessly try to get out of your maniacal trap; tapping on the glass, screaming for help, and desperately gasping for air. Ok, so I made that last part up, but you can shake it and watch it snow. White X360-Mas indeed.
Speaking of avatars, if you head into the customization section for avatars you'll notice some new winter gear, free of charge, to keep your avatar nice and warm during his stay in the snow globe. These items are easily recognizable as they are marked with a star, denoting a new item. You can even download a holiday theme to go with it, free to Gold Members...no, not that one.
From what we hear we can expect new "theme packs" of avatar accessories every few months. There's no official word if they'll be free like the winter pack, but we can only hope. My guess is the first time there's a Master Chief helmet available, that'll be the first time they charge.
